Do you guys play top down or in first person mode?

I always find myself playing in top down view, even when just walking around.

First person view until I get into battle, and then top-down view for better micro-managing of the individual characters.

Ok so I have now finished Awakening and it is good but not as good as origins. Now that said... (possible spoiler highlight to see)

I mentioned in my quote above about not feeling like I had continued on from Origins. Well I will give them credit that in the text epilogue at the end it did mention that my character was rumored to has been off with Leliana. So I guess it did come around full circle, sort of anyways.

Edit: we need spoiler tags

Well.... depending on what choice you make at the end of DAO, it's kinda hard to easily seguay (sp?) into Awakenings.......

Very true.

Either way the entire overall experience was very good.

Congrats to Bioware on another great game.
